The opening ceremony of the Chinese Film Festival was held yesterday at Nay Pyi Taw Cinema on Sule Pagoda Road, Yangon.
The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China organized the festival, and Union Minister for Information Dr Pe Myint attended and delivered a speech.
Chinese Ambassador to Myanmar Mr. Hong Liang also delivered a speech, noting that two Chinese movies were screened in Mandalay, Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon at last year’s Chinese Film Festival, which was held on Chinese National Day in October 2017.
During this year’s Chinese Film Festival, the Chinese Embassy in Myanmar will show the finest Chinese movies, with Myanmar voice-overs. Also, movies from Myanmar are being dubbed with Chinese voice-overs and will be shown in China. This is designed to help promote friendly Paukphaw relationships.
